Over the weekend, I visited some fabulous antique and thrift stores.
Do you remember the ivy topiaries that I made last fall? Well they are still alive. I will give you a moment to recover before sharing my find with you.
Tip: ivy attracts scale and spider mites. To prevent this, spray plant once a week with the kitchen sprayer.
Here is the find...
a wooden crate perfect for holding plants in the kitchen window.
I can even picture it filled with candles on a summer night, or gardening supplies.
For now it is going to sit right here and hold the ivy.
Here is my other find for $5. I didn't realize I needed this funky mirror until I saw the price. All it needs is a coat of paint. What do you think ladies...white?
I also picked up a chair that I cannot wait to get my hands on. It was too big to bring back from the mountains unless we left one of our children or the co-editor behind. Well school starts tomorrow, so the kids had to come with us...ha ha. The co-editor does my proof reading and I need her.
The chair will come on the next trip...
